Care and Maintenance for Shaw Array LVT Vinyl Tile and Plank

Although Shaw LVT floors are durable, all floor coverings require some care to look their best and many problems can be prevented before they occur. During the first 48 hours it is important to:

  • Keep all furniture and traffic off the floor for 24 hours
  • Avoid cleaning the floor for the first 48 hours to allow adhesive to dry

Maintenance for Shaw Array LVT Vinyl Floors

The type and frequency of traffic on your Shaw LVT floor will determine the frequency of maintenance needed.

The type of floor, and even the color, will have some bearing on how much care may be necessary.

Regular adherence to an effective maintenance program should include:

  • thorough dirt and grit regulation
  • prompt removal of spills and stains
  • protection of the floor surface

The most effective part of any floor maintenance is the simplest: sweep, dust or mop daily or more frequently if needed.

Use non-abrasive cleaners only

We recommend Shawfloors Hard Surface cleaner with R2X to keep your reslilient floors looking their best.

Do not use vinegar as a cleaning agent on Shaw Array products.
